Minnetonka Makes Security Company’s List of Safest Minnesota Cities
The beautiful city tied with North Mankato at the No. 12 spot. A total of 21 cities were named to the list. According to Safe Choice Security, the rankings were based on 2012 FBI Crime Statistics reports. After analyzing the statistics on property and violent crimes rates, the company was able to rank the top 21 safest towns in the state. Here’s how Minnetonka is described on the list:
“Minnetonka, MN is located just outside of Minneapolis in Hennepin County. Bordering Lake Minnetonka, the city is home to several big businesses. With a crime rate significantly lower than the county and state and average income higher, Minnetonka is a great place to do business or live. Minnetonka offers a variety of resources to residents of this suburb. A natural resource management plan is in place to promote sustainability and preserve the untouched beauty of much of the city. The dedicated police force helps to keep citizens safe and encourages citizen involvement in crime prevention.”
